Events: USLS Hosts Earth Day Fora
In line with the celebration of Earth Day, the Institute for Negros Development and BALAYAN of the University of St. La Salle (USLS) recently hosted talks on Disaster Risk Reduction and "Green Business, Green Jobs."
The talks on both topics were simultaneously conducted on April 20 at the MM Auditorium and Santuario De La Salle with the participation of students, teachers from different schools and institutions, government employees and non-government organizations in the province.
The talks highlighted the importance of safety and how business could impact the environmental development in the community.
"The celebration and campaign towards the preservation of our environment is not confined only on one day but it should be continuous and over-all," Renato Bañas, secretariat of Earth Day 2012 Bacolod, said.
Bañas added that talks were also partnered with Provincial Disaster Coordinating Council, Department of Trade and Industry, Department of Labor and Employment, Negros Organic and Agriculture Movement.
Earth Day Network Philippines Incorporated President Bert Guevara was also present to monitor and coordinate the nationwide celebration of Earth Day.*
